Troposphere Python infrastructure as code for AWS Cloudformation
Python Infrastructure as Code for AWS Cloudformation
What is Infrastructure as code?
Infrastructure as code is the process of managing and provisioning computing
infrastructure (processes, bare-metal servers, virtual servers, etc.) and their
configuration through machine-processable definition files, rather than physical
hardware configuration or the use of interactive configuration tools.
What is Cloudformation?
Amazon Web Services (AWS) CloudFormation is a service that helps you model and
set up your AWS resources so that you can spend less time managing those
resources and more time focusing on your applications that run in AWS.
What is Troposphere?
The troposphere library allows for easier creation of the AWS CloudFormation
JSON by writing Python code to describe the AWS resources. troposphere also
includes some basic support for OpenStack resources via Heat.
